Who loved Star Wars as a kid? Now, be honest: who still loves Star Wars?
Growing up, there was nothing better than Star Wars in my house. They were the only movies we could all agree on. Dad made endless references to Yoda and Obi-Wan Kenobi, and every oddly shaped pancake was Jabba The Hut.
Now I watch the digitally remastered original and endure my young cousins quoting Jar Jar Binks.
Oddly shaped pancakes are still Jabba The Hut in my house, but now I have Yodas and Darth Vaders™ too.
Grab some Padawan and Jedi Master bakers and savor Star Wars Day!
May the 4th be with you.
